Fairy Friends Using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Hi, Everyone!

I’ve been on a Lawn Fawn kick lately – especially with my Splicoaststamper designs.  I think this is the last one for now – until the next release because I’m a total sucker for these stamp sets.

The Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker hype has died down a lot, hasn’t it!? I remember when it was new and was a MUST-HAVE. I have all 60 colors of course and decided it was time I pulled them out to play.  They really are SO easy to use and I was able to make this card really quickly!

Fairy Friends 1

I stamped the images using Versafine Onyx Black ink and embossed using clear white powder. This creates a border for me to color in and keeps it outlined without ruining the image.

Fairy Friends 2

I applied very little color and was able to pull it out using a Pentel Water Brush – so simple! Easier than using watercolored pencils, in my opinion!

Hope you all like it!  Here’s the video:

Baby Update:

I’m dilated to 2cms as of last Friday. I will be seeing the OB every week until the baby delivers and have another ultrasound scheduled for this Friday as well. I’m a little girl and when I delivered my youngest, Liam at 7lbs 14oz, his clavicle broke. So they want to know the baby’s size to anticipate any complications for this delivery. I’m schedule for an induction April 1st at 39 weeks – but I’m hoping she’ll make her grand entrance sooner. I’m more than ready!

Spring Flowers on Vellum

Hi, Everyone!

So sorry it’s been a while since I last posted here! I’ve been working overtime and trying to fulfill my commitment with Splitcoaststampers to design cards for the next 5 months. I’m just about done for this month so I thought I’d squeeze this card in for my personal blog. If you want to see my work for Splitcoaststampers, you can check it out HERE – each month’s designs will be released/featured on the 15th of month.

For today’s card, I’m coloring using Copic makers on vellum. It creates very soft colors and is beautiful! There’s not much to it!Spring Flowers on Vellum 2

I heat embossed my stamped images using some white embossing powder -then flipped it over to color on the back (this keeps the embossed image from ruining  the nibs on your alcohol markers).

I layered it on some white paper to make the colors pop.

I also add some sequins to embellish it – here’s a close up! Isn’t it pretty?!

The border is done using a Wonky Stitched Rectangles die set by My Favorite Things. The only thing I wish I could change is not adding adhesive to the border – which caused it to ripple and warp. It’s still pretty and is something I’ve learned for next time.

Supplies are listed below. If you’d like to watch the video – here it is:
